NAIROBI, Kenya — An official in Kenya says that Nairobi’s main airport has reopened for domestic and cargo flights after a huge fire Wednesday that destroyed the airport’s international arrivals hall.
Michael Kamau, the cabinet secretary for transport and infrastructure, said plans are underway to change another of the airport’s units into an international terminal so those flights can resume as well.
Wednesday’s early-morning fire raged for more than four hours before it was brought under control. No serious injuries were reported.
